The best games where you can measure progress over time with a time tracker ⌚️ 2022

Looking for a really good game where you can track your progress with a timer ⌚️? Then we have just the thing for you: the list of the best time meter games 2022.

What are time Meter games?

There is a linear "time meter" with many squares. Each player has a marker on this so called "time meter" that indicates where he is "in time". Markers further along the line are further ahead in time.

The player with the last marker on the track (furthest "back in time") performs the next action. Each action costs time, and the player's marker is moved forward a number of spaces equal to that cost. Then the next lowest marker on the timer performs an action. It is possible for the same player to make several moves in a row.

"Time tracking" is also referred to as "time meter".

Examples of games where you can keep track of your progress with a timer

A good example of a time meter game is Patchwork.
